Big and delicious for your 'perty mouth. Expect lovely, warm smells of single malt scotch, oaky bourbon barrels, smoke, sweet caramel and roasted malts. A bit of earthy spice and a scintilla of dark cherries. It's a kick-back sipper made to excite the palate.

Product Reviews


  1. 4 Star Review Best Barrel Aged Beer So Far

    Chocolate, Salted Caramel and Vanilla flavors covered by a smokey finish makes this not only a rich beer, but a very unique flavorful one.

    This isn't a sessionale beer, but is a great one for conversation. You discover a new flavor with each sip.

  2. 4 Star Review Huge!

    Bought this on a whim based upon what some acquaintances had said of their other brews. If you like bourbon this is the beer for you as it has a significantly BIG bourbon flavour - its like they forgot to empty the bourbon out of the barrel before putting the beer in. ABV of 11.15% - 3.4 standard drinks in one little bottle. If you don't like bourbon do not buy this!

  3. 5 Star Review I will drink other beers.... but I will always be thinking of this one.

    Simply the best thing I have ever had the pleasure of drinking.

  4. 4 Star Review A warm hug in a bottle.

    This would be the beer equivalent of sipping on a nice scotch or whiskey. Great flavours, nice aroma and that nice kick that let's you know you're drinking something serious. I know it's being picky but it could have been in a smaller bottle.

  5. 3 Star Review Great(3.5*)

    Nose of top shelf bourbon and oak. First up tastes of chocolate with viscous mouthfeel. Bourbon flavours are bold and appealing. Warming bourbon finish.

  6. 4 Star Review very good

    A strong bourbon flavour comes through from the barrels with vanilla and light citrus. Good dessert beer and to sip on.
